Irish Flurry

NEWS

A rush of news out of Ireland, courtesy of the Irish Genealogy News blog, with posts on the following topics:


Parish Chest have published another newsletter, which contains plenty of the usual friendly chat as well as the many latest releases from societies up and down the country.

Those with Northumberland interests may wish to investigate this little mystery.  John Reid has pointed out the apparent release of a fresh batch of records pertaining to England's most northerly county, but, as his post and the related comments make clear, there is some dispute as to who can actually access them.  Anyway, you may wish to have a look (and a try) for yourself.

I know it seems a long way off - both in terms of distance and time - but I've started noticing mentions of next February's Rootstech Conference in the US ... here, for example.  Well, it is quite a big event, so we can't really ignore it!

ARTICLES

FindMyPast are doing their very best to milk as much as they can out of the recently-released Merchant Navy Seamen records (see my post of yesterday) - including a curious little piece about some celebrity links (note: TNA's take on the record-release can be seen here).

Postcard collectors out there may, or may not, be aware of this information, but The Wandering Genealogist offers a spot of advice on the topic, here.

And John Reid's blog offers something a little off-beat, here.  How does your face measure up, I wonder?
